Astoria, Oregon Attractions
Located at what was once Astoria City Hall, the Heritage Museum now acts as the regional museum for the Clatsop County Historical Society. Temporary and permanent exhibits showcase the history of Clatsop County, including the original Native Americans, the Lewis and Clark expedition, and the pioneers, immigrants, and local businesses and industry that called the county home.
In the museum, you’ll find historical items ranging from a 1,000-year-old hunting device, through 19th- and 20th-Century industrial and personal tools, equipment, and photographs, as well as fur pelts that were hunted by fur traders back in the day. You’ll see equipment used in local logging and you’ll experience the stories of the many people who called this area home over the years.
The Heritage Museum is open year-round.
